    What's this all about?

    A month after the email, Ms. Lerner would plant a question at a conference to reveal the scandal, just before the inspector general’s report was made public.

    I know I'm gonna regret asking, but why do you think Lerner took the 5th?

    It is the IRS, it would be very prudent to be mindful of what is in a email, no matter the party of the POTUS. It is also smart advice for anyone who works in an office environment.

    Knowing how this IRS will target certain groups/people of a certain political persuasion, and knowing they have handed over enforcement of Obamacare to them. Whats the odds of someone being denied medical treatments because of there politics??? I dont think its that far fetched.

    Re: GOP: Lerner warned IRS employees to hide information from Congress

    On April 9, 2013, Lois Lerner, the Director of Exempt Organization at the IRS, sent an email to Maria Hooke, who is an IT person at the IRS, and copied Nanette Downing, who was in charge of organizational audits as the Acting Director of Exempt Organizations-Examinations at the IRS.

    Lerner email to Hooke and Downing on April 9, 2013:

    I had a question today about OCS. I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails—so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails. Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable—I don’;t know, but told them I would get back to them. Do you know?

    Hooke response to Lerner and Downing on April 9, 2013:

    OCS messages are not set to automatically save the standard; however the functionality exists within the software. That being said the parties involved in an OCS conversation can copy and save the contents of the conversation to an email or file.

    To date OCS conversations are not specifically identified as part of the Electronic Data Request (EDR) for inforamtion, however, if one of the parties saved the conversation as an email or file they would become part of the electronic search.

    My general recommendation is to treat the conversation as if it could/is being saved somehwere, as it is possible for either party of the conversation to retain the information and have it turn up as part of the electronic search.

    Make sense?

    Lerner response to Hooke and Downing on April 9, 2013:

    Perfect
    (This looks bad for Lerner!) Lerner told IRS employess

    Hopefully Lerner and her posse will learn their lesson, as well.
